Hull City’s comeback season in the Premier League has been dismal and if things do not improve really soon, the Tigers could make an immediate return to the Championship. Badly needing an inspiration to save their season, Hull City are targeting Saint Etienne target Ousmane Tannane in January. The Moroccan international has been impressive for the Ligue 1 outfit this season since joining them from Heracles Almelo in January 2016.
Can Tannane turn around Hull City’s fortunes? Is he that special? Here is a SWOT analysis of the Moroccan international winger.
Tannane is a very talented winger boasting an impressive technique. He is a natural dribbler and possesses an incredible burst of pace. Hull City are clearly lacking firepower up front and the 22-year-old can add a lot to their toothless attack.
Tannane is never scared to test the opponent keepers. He has had 1.7 shots per game this season and has played 1 key pass every game. Apart from Snodgrass, none of the attacking players have been able to make their mark for Hull this season but Tannane can add a lot to their impotent attack.
The Netherlands-born Morocco international has made 1.9 dribbles every game this campaign and such an enigmatic player can make the difference for Phelan’s side.
Tannane is a pretty young player and his lack of experience might hurt Hull City. We have seen many players struggling to find their feet in the Premier League after moving from a foreign country and an inexperienced Tannane might also face the same. However, talkSPORT claim that Hull could get their man for just £4.2m which is not at all a big figure.
Hull City are in no place to take a gamble but the stakes are pretty high. If Tannane’s price was a bit higher, we would have suggested Hull not to go for him but they can certainly take a chance with the price tag being so low.
Well, for any player in the world, playing in the Premier League is a dream and if Hull City offer Tannane a chance to live his dream, he will certainly jump the ship. The Tigers are not in the best place but are still are a reputed club in England. Also, the wage structure in English football is way too good to turn down.
Joining Hull City in January will be a big call from Tannane because they are already in the relegation zone and if things do not improve after his move, he will have to play in Championship which will be step down from Ligue 1. That won’t be the best step forward in his career.
